  1. The Edited Life is Worth Writing

    Socrates famously declared, "The unexamined life is not worth living." I would agree with that. But how about this one by me, "The edited life is worth writing?" I am currently editing my journal of seven years to be published as a Kindle book on Amazon.com. There are over five-hundred entries to sift through. I hadn't read the majority of them after they had been originally published here at Morrissey-Solo and/or at my MySpace blog. Some of them don't warrant being put in a book e.g....

  4. Wandering Eyes

    I am having a difficult time focusing on reading one book at a time on my Kindle. Depending on my mood, I’ve been selecting one book over another each night I settle into bed for my nightly reading. Last night, I was in the mood for something light, as I was tired from editing my print book earlier in the day, so I read a bit of Rob Lowe’s autobiography Stories I Only Tell My Friends. It’s a real page-turner. He is a very entertaining and engaging writer and actually wrote the book...

  7. A Year in a Life of Books ~ 2012

    I read a lot of books. Probably 99.5 percent are non-fiction. Although I have been routinely listing and critiquing the films I see every year, I have never done this with books. Better late than never. This will be my first list. I am starting it at the beginning of the year rather than at the end, because if I wait until December, I will have forgotten many of the ones I have read. This will be an ongoing list--to be updated regularly. I will give each book a rating of one to four points....
  8. Fifty Shades of Sex

    *Update: June 1, 2012 ~ Listen to Slate's Audio Book Club discussion of Fifty Shades of Grey. *Update: June 2, 2012 at end of post. Rarely do I read fiction. The last novel I read was Lolita a few years ago. And I don't think I have ever read a romance novel, unless you count The Thornbirds. An erotic book? Does American Psycho count? But after listening to the Cultural Gabfest Podcast's hosts talk about the book Fifty Shades of Grey, my interest was piqued. I read the first book in...
  9. Fifty Shades of Grey Dream Cast

    I am going to play casting director and post my picks for who I think should play the characters in the soon to be made film adaptation of the book Fifty Shades of Grey. The list is ongoing and subject to change. Christian Grey: Alex Pettyfer Why? He's the hottest young actor out there right now. He has Christian's chiseled, gorgeous face, his lean, muscular bod, his generous height, and his messy hair. Plus he is fairly new on the scene and would be able to devote a few years to the...
  10. Brain Drain July

    **7/21/12 ~ Update at bottom of post... *7/10/12 ~Update near bottom of post... Just as the temperatures outside reach their highs, my cultural pursuits hit all-time lows. Can it get any worse than consuming all three books in the Fifty Shades of Grey series in less than a week’s time? And if that weren’t enough, to continue the obsession by blogging about the books—twice—as if I hadn’t already spent enough time reading the texts? There was the artwork—the painting of Christian Grey....
  11. Christopher Hitchens ~ Still Loving You

    *Update September 24, 2012 ~ Just finished Mortality. It is a short book... can be read in one or two sittings. I highly recommend it to all Hitchens fans and anyone else interested in the personal dialogue that goes on in one's head when dealing with cancer and terminal illness. The late, great Christopher Hitchens' book, Mortality, is being published posthumously on September 4, 2012. Remember, you too are mortal—hit me at the top of my form and just as things were beginning...
  12. Martin Amis Without Hitchens

    Author Martin Amis on coping with the loss of his best friend Christopher Hitchens... When Christopher Hitchens died in December, Martin Amis lost his best friend. The British author says his immediate desolation gave way to a much greater love of life, something Amis believes Hitchens had in spades and bequeathed to him when he passed away.

  14. Nothingness Into Being

    Nothingness = a closed spherical spacetime of zero radius Can you imagine nothingness? Right now I am reading a book titled, Why Does the World Exist?: An Existential Detective story. About halfway through the book, I came across a wonderful passage. The author, Jim Holt, speaks with physicist Alex Vilenkin about the difficulty in imagining sheer nothingness. Vilken helps make this possible with a thought experiment: Imagine spacetime as the surface of a sphere. Now suppose that this...
